The database lists identification codes for multilateral trading facilities (MTFs). The list is published for the purpose of identification of the counterparty to the transaction as regards to transaction reporting. The publication of the identifiers ensure the compliance of national competent authorities with the Article 13 (2) of the MiFID Level 2 regulation.
Some entities are still waiting for allocation of codes from the SWIFT Company (in charge of the allocation of BIC and MIC codes) and/or a final decision from the national competent authority. The lists will be updated on a regular basis as and when ESMA is given further information on gaps.
The list of regulated markets and MTFs can also be used to identify trading venues among Member States. To identify trading venues outside this area, you should refer to the ISO Web Site of the Market Identifier Code (MIC): http://www.iso15022.org/MIC/.
ESMA has collected this information among its members and will update the list on a regular basis. This database is a compilation of the information from all national competent authorites. Some national competent authorities will, in addition, publish their own information separately on their websites.
